Three events in two days help beer lovers celebrate October

If you love beer, then next weekend is the perfect time to wet your whistle.

Tourism Harrison is bringing back the successful Harrison Beer Festival, hosting 23 different breweries at the two-day event.

The festival features three events. There is the Cask Night on Friday, Oct. 24 and the Harrison Beer Festival and the Oktoberfest Dance on Saturday, Oct. 25.

Last year, 1,200 litres of beer was poured to about 800 attendees.

This year, 23 breweries will be bringing along 70 different types of beer for guests to choose from. Some of those brewers will be traveling long distances to celebrate in Harrison Hot Springs, including Mill St. Brewery in Ontario.
